Tricky Miss

This little roan girl made my birthday very challenging.

We arrived home from work to find her mum in labour and in obvious distress.

Upon examination we found the baby cria positioned with both her head and front legs facing backwards in the uterus – there was no way she could be delivered without help.

So rather than getting dressed up to go out to a birthday dinner, I clipped my nails, scrubbed up and with plenty of lube manouvered her long neck around in the very tight space to get her head out so she could  breathe. Next I managed to free one front foot. Finally the vet arrived and repositioned her other front foot  to enable her to be delivered. Whew!

Very hard work, very stressful but what a wonderful result. Mum and baby are doing really well.

Welcome to the world little Haze.
